of the federal health care law. so we think that it is a great ideal. john: they can't find you if you don't join up. >> that's right, when it was written, congress would not give the federal government authority to assess the penalties on businesses for noncompliance. it also did not give the federal government authority to subsidize private insurance companies. so without subsidies to insurance companies and businesses who refuse to comply with the law, where whereas the law? it is nowhere? john: your group wants to go farther? >> it is an agreement between two or more states and we have seven states that are now passing it the legislators voted for it and have signed it into law and i will be presented to congress. if approved by congress, it gives total authority for health care in her state, including making the money come back to the state. this is the way for states to say we can do a better job and we are closer to the people. we think that is a good approach across the board they can have a single-payer system or like the state of texas might do, have a free open system. john: let's move
. there are certain laws that are in place that sort of make illegal the possession of machine guns, but in terms of things like the ar-15, in terms of a lot of these some automatics this are on the market, there is actually no regulation, it sounds like. gun manufacturers get to decide what they want to market to the consumer. is that right? >> right. guns are the only consumer good that is not regulated by the federal government. there are actually more federal regulation on manufacturing bb guns than there are real guns, so it really is, you know, francly ridiculous when you look at it like that, and i think what you brought up of guns making it into the illegal market, which is a big problem, we have to realize that 40% of all gun sales in this country every year go unchecked. i mean, that's a really easy way for a legitimate gun to fall into the hands of an illegitimate person, and we need to fix that problem, and the president's proposals will do just that. >> let me bring in our wonderful panel here in new york. hans, harry reid is bringing to theoretically going to bring this legislation

be banned in the u.s. if in fact this bill is signed into law. earlier in the press conference, senator feinstein explained why it's important to prevent you, law abiding citizens and americans from opening so-called assault weapons which apparently now includes handguns and shotguns. look at this. >> military style assault weapons have, but one purpose and in my view that's a military purpose to hold at the hip, if possible, to spray fire, to be able to kill large numbers. >> sean: forgive me, senator, nobody is holding a handgun at their hip or using a shotgun to quote, spray fire bullets, that's not how guns work. following that parade of information, the national rifle association, they issued this state, quote, senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law abiding citizens for decades, it's disappointing, but not surprising she's focused on curtailing the constitution, than focusing on criminals and confident in fact that congress will in fact reject senator feinstein's approach. it's not just the american people who real a gun ban is not the answer for mass shootings. a s

, as well. >> let's talk about gun laws because i know they're considering gun laws in texas that would allow swron to carry a concealed weapon on a campus. they can't do that now, right? >> reporter: it's interesting. the texas legislators have gone through this debate several times. many years ago they passed a conceal handgun law where you can hear a handgun and that's what was used in this incident. but there are places where even despite having that license you you can't carry a handgun. churches and school campuses are one of those. ironically enough, there are lawmakers in austin that want to change that aspect of the concealed handgun law here in texas and allow students to carry guns on to campus. so we'll see how this plays out in that debate, as well. >> all right. ed lavendera, thanks so much. >>> investigators say the new mexico teenager accused of murdering members of his family had hoped to go on a killing spree and die in a shoot-out with police. the 15-year-old was arrested saturday night after deputies found the bodies of his mother, father, brother and two of his sist

's assault weapons ban would be more restricted than the law that expired a decade ago. i want to bring mack molly ball and jonathan allen, senior washington correspondent for politico. first of all, let me start with you, molly. did senator feinstein's bill have any chance of passage? >> it's going to be very difficult. you know, this has been true since the day after the sandy hook tragedy and it's hard to see how it has changed. the math is just extremely hard. first in the senate where you have a lot of red-state democrats whose strategy electorally has been to diffuse the gun issue, to be pro-nra, pro-second amendment. >> yeah. >> and then you get to the house where there's a republican majority and we just haven't seen a lot of evidence of republicans really defecting on this issue. >> i want to bring in congressman the democrat from long island there and congressman, do we have you there? there we go. there's the congressman. thank you very much, congressman. from rhode island. i think we got that in there, at least. good to see you again, sir. >> you, too, craig. let me pick up where

is each body talking about passing a resolution, which is not a law, and doesn't change anything. it is just a resolution, a promise to do something in the future. and the way they have written it, apparently ezra, if the senate passes one, then okay, the senate can get paid. if the house passes one then house members can get paid. but the 27th amendment very simply says no law varying the compensation of the services of senators and representatives shall take effect until the elected representatives shall have intervened. this varies their compensation. and i just want to play this video, we have to do this. of what john boehner said about their respect for the constitution. the new respect for the constitution that they were bringing to the house of representatives when they took over in 2011. let's listen to this. >> i mean, gone on the days when the constitution will be ignored. in this congress, there will be clear constitutional authority required, when members file bills. >> remember that, ezra, they were supposed to file their bill and constitutional memo, saying why the
